This weekend was a perfect watermelon-slice of summer in every way, from the visits to the pool:


. . . to the sunscreen-styled hair . . .


. . . and the Seafair Blue Angels air show, enjoyed by the parents while the noise-sensitive children were safely ensconced at home with a babysitter.





If you’re going to turn a year older, this was exactly the right sort of day for it—lucky for JB.





Happy birthday, mate. You, and everything else in our lives, just keep getting better.

    Great photos – happy birthday!

    We took our daughter to an air show when she was 2 because she loved planes. Yeah, turns out she loves planes as long as they make NO noise.

    Linda, this is so sweet- but I have a complaint: you have a way of ruining my eye makeup before my day has even really begun. Happy Birthday to JB!

    Sounds like a perfectly lovely way to spend the day- I especially love how you got a sitter so you could do something that you knew the kids wouldn’t dig… we don’t do that nearly enough. Happy Birthday JB!
